Buzz up! Lindsay Lohan Suing E-Trade for Milkaholic "Parody"Us Magazine - March 9, 2010 5:07 PM PST

Eric Ryan/Getty ImagesUs Magazine Lindsay Lohan is no milkaholic.

And that's likely why the 23-year-old star is suing financial company E-Trade for $100 million for using her name in its latest commercial about a boyfriend-stealing "milkaholic" baby.

The ad, which debuted during this year's Super Bowl in February, a baby boy apologizes to his girlfriend for not calling her the night before.

"And that milkaholic Lindsay wasn't over?" the baby girl asks before another baby girl pops into the screen saying, "Milk-a-whaaat?"

Lohan filed the lawsuit Monday, which claims the ad violated the star's rights under New York state civil-rights law.

"Many celebrities are known by one name only, and E-Trade is using that knowledge to profit," Lohan's lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, said in a statement to the New York Post. "They're using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn't they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody's talking about it and saying it's Lindsay Lohan."

The spokesperson for Grey Group, which produced the "milkaholic" commercial, said that they "just used a popular baby name that happened to be the name of someone on the account team."

In the lawsuit, Lohan is seeking an injunction to force the spot off the air.

This is stupid and I hope this gets thrown out of court. Lohan doesn't have the rights to that name so she can't sue over something so stupid. I don't understand why she thinks that's attacking her. Maybe all the drugs are starting to get to her. :noidea:

Not only is the Oprah/Madonna comparison a joke, but Lohan isn't even the most popular Lindsay:
